About the Event

It’s chanterelle mushroom season in Northeast Georgia. Let’s see what we can find on the trails! Foraging in summer is a prime time to hone your botanical identification skills as many of the plants and fungi are blooming and fruiting. You can tell a lot about a plant by its inflorescence (flower) and fruit. This might even help you distinguish a toxic plant from a non-toxic plant – a most important skill for any forager to learn!

On this walk, we are likely to come across Solomon’s seal with its berries, Queen Anne’s lace in bloom, and possibly the elusive ghost pipe, a powerful natural analgesic. Join us at the peak of the growing season as we continue to learn about the wild plants in our natural environment that can be used as food and medicine.

Participants will meet at BotanoLogos HQ in Downtown Clayton, GA. From there, we will carpool or caravan to a nearby trailhead.
